Based in Seoul, Rhiley worked with GGGI’s Sustainable Landscapes Thematic Area, Impact and Evaluation Unit, Green Investment Services, and Green Growth Planning and Implementation teams. She supported the Sustainable Landscapes Thematic Area, Green Investment Services, and Green Growth Planning and Implementation teams with developing projects that were investable, ecologically sustainable, and focused on GGGI’s 6 strategic outcomes: 1) greenhouse gas emission reduction; 2) creation of green jobs; 3) increased access to sustainable services; 4) improved air quality; 5) adequate supply of ecosystem services; and 6) enhanced adaptation to climate change. Such projects included deforestation-free agriculture in Laos, land-use management around Narmada Streams in India, building climate resilience in tea value chains for small tea growers in India, mangrove restoration in Myanmar, and green rehabilitation investment projects for Karakalpakstan Republic from the Aral Sea crisis in Uzbekistan. Additionally, Rhiley worked with GGGI’s Impact and Evaluation Unit to evaluate the outcomes of projects within both the Uganda Country Program and the Sustainable Landscapes Thematic Area.
